Indie-music newsletter’s greatest hits
“This one is by the amazing Raymond Pettibon who famously designed the Black Flag logo as well as the covers of several iconic albums, including Sonic Youth’s Dirty. It came to us by permission of the artist and from the personal collection of Keith Morris.”
“A really powerful piece of work by a kid who was 17 at the time and living in backwater Virginia, named Steven Seymour. He later moved to New York on a full Cooper Union scholarship and changed his name to Seychelle Allah. Part of a series curated by Jonathan Coward, also known as SHAMS.”
“Hilarious, yet sincere Americana by Max Eisenberg, also known as DJ Dog Dick. An homage to the seminal unknown ’90s noise band Macronympha.”
“A hyper-modern, digitally rendered still life by Takeshi Murata. Curated by Jared Olmstead.”
“An amazing piece by Dora Budor and Maja Cule, curated by Gabby Shaw and Alaina Stamatis.”

Each issue featured poster-worthy cover art spanning the front and back covers, and we asked publisher and promoter Todd Patrick to walk us through his favorite issues of the publication’s eventful history.
